Memory & Lore

Sister is pleased to announce the opening of Memory & Lore, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Robert Gutierrez.  Fusing Filipino folklore and animism, Gutierrez's works are an amalgam of the dystopic mental landscape and a disjointed, fantastical narrative, often presenting multiple narratives that unfold within a single work.  Thematically, the works range from the transmogrified idyllic to an almost serene harmony of sexuality, violence, and chaos.  Gutierrez weaves together these themes through his distinctive sense of composition and attention to detail.
